New contest designed to put table game companies and game concept creators back in the limelight
A contest designed to put table game
companies and game concept creators back in the limelight - the Best New Table
Games of 2008 Competition - will take
center stage at the inaugural Raving Consulting’s Cutting Edge Table Games
Conference, Sept. 14-16 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel Casino in Las Vegas.
The conference provides a venue to
showcase recent new table game ideas, advancements and innovations, and it also
provides a way for the innovators behind those games to be honored by the
gaming industry’s table game professionals.
“Many new table game inventors are
individuals, ‘the little guys’ with sometimes nothing more than an idea, a
mathematical analysis, a short bankroll and incredible tenacity. This Best New
Table Games Competition gives them equal footing and recognition with the large
companies who have many table games in their portfolio,” said Dennis Conrad,
president and chief strategist of Raving Consulting Co. “It shows a voting
audience of senior table game executives that a hot new table game is as likely
to come from an inventor’s garage as a company’s high tech development
laboratory. And why not? Ultimately, table game players don’t care where a
table game comes from, only that it hits their hot buttons for fun, playing
time and a chance to win.”
The Best New Table Games of 2008
Competition is open to individuals or companies that have developed (or own the
rights to) casino table games which have been created in the last three years
and currently have less than 50 total units in casinos worldwide. They must be
fairly considered to be a table game for a table game environment, not an
electronic version of a table game. Poker games and poker game variations are
acceptable. Booth space at the show and entry to this year’s contest almost
immediately sold out.
Judging for the Best New Table Games of
2008 Competition will be conducted by attendees of Raving’s Cutting Edge Table
Games Conference who have no affiliation with any of the individuals or
companies whose new table games are entered in the competition. The main
judging will occur during the opening night reception for the conference, Sept.
14, from 6 to 9 p.m. Additional time for judging will be allotted during the
conference for qualified attendees unable to attend the opening night reception.
Winners will be announced at the conference’s keynote
luncheon address of the conference on Sept. 16.
Cutting Edge Table Games Conference will also feature informative sessions to
provide attendees with strategies and tips to fine tune table game operations.
